Misadventures: My blooper reel and all things in between

Let’s get real, friends! I don’t really know what I’m doing half the time and when I started this blog, I knew I’d be in for a lot of misadventures. EMBRACE THE UNKNOWN. I hope you find some laughter and fun here because that’s what this is all about. So, like a good comedy movie that has the best bloopers, here are mine!

But oops, looks like I haven’t made too big of a mess┬álately ­čÖé Although, I will share a story with you about one of my first baking experiences with my friend, Gaby. We were trying to make one of these strawberry meringue cakes:

It was difficult from the start and it really was like diving headfirst into the deep end! We whipped the cream by hand until our arms were numb and it looked amazing when we put it in the fridge. Fast forward to two hours later, we open up the fridge and found that the whole cake had collapsed. COLLAPSED! I haven’t tried making this since. Talk about a messy misadventure.
